An Old Boot A walk around the Lake, Hansen Dam Recreation Area
In the mid-1940s, the Hansen Dam Basin attracted thousands of visitors every year. Holiday Lake was created in 1952 , and was used by swimmers, boaters, and anglers. By 1991, the lake had become completely filled with sediment and was abandoned. In 2015 a $300,000 cleanup effort was initiated to remove homeless encampments.
According to the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks (in 2013) and Wkipedia, “Recreation Center and Park features a moderate size lake which is filled with circulated drinking water and offers fishing and public boating. The lake is open year-round, including holidays, but may be closed during times of severe weather or for planned events.”
